Highlight: The new (used) Class C RV, work, and some other items are all competing for our time. Nevertheless, we have set to the task of outfitting Monte’s bug out bag (the RV). His Royal Highness has demanded a new set of Corelle dishes, new knives, decorative pillows, and, of course, new bowls for his food and water. Mr. Monte also indicated where he wants his portrait to hang – obviously, in the most conspicuous place.
As you cat owners (or you who are owned by cats) well know, there was no need to buy new sheets, pillows, or spreads. Cats prefer to be surrounded by bedding that has already been used and accepted by the cat. Smell is important to a cat, especially when it comes to selecting a place to sleep.
There was one other alternative on the table for bedding. I suggested that we just throw sleeping bags on the bed. That would save all the hassle of making a bed in cramped spaces. Wonderful, adorable spouse quickly put a damper on that idea. She emphatically stated that we are “glamping” not camping. – – – So much for the sleeping bag idea.
Weather: Yes, it’s a heat wave. Yes, we’re hot and miserable. Yes, we’re complaining. No, we don’t feel guilty. If we’re living the way grandma did, then we can understand why she was so crabby in the summer time.

Harvest: On July 2nd, beautiful wife braved the heat and picked enough green beans for two meals. Perhaps begrudgingly, but certainly wisely she de-stringed this batch. The result was much more palatable.
